We engage five primary work areas that intersect and strengthen one another to advance a culture of dialogue at CU and the surrounding community.

  1. Dialogues Curriculum: We offer a 3-credit undergraduate course, "Dialogue Across Difference," which provides students the opportunity to learn what dialogue entails, practice dialogue, and be trained as dialogue facilitators.

  2. Facilitated Dialogues: We facilitate classroom dialogues, developed in consultation with faculty, that extend learning about course topics​ and community dialogues held outside of CU classes.

  3. ​Staff-to-staff DEI Dialogues: We develop staff-to-staff diversity, equity and inclusion dialogue programming, in consultation and collaboration with requesting units​. Our current focus in this area is collaborating with CU’s Finance and Business Strategy Unit to develop the FBS Dialogue Project. 

  4. ​Professional Development: We offer professional development for graduate students and faculty in dialogic pedagogy and dialogue practices. The DEI-Informed Dialogic Pedagogy Micro-credential is a10-week workshop series for CU Boulder M.A. and PhD students, particularly those currently working as Graduate Part Time Instructors (GPTIs) or Teaching Assistants (TAs) in any academic department.

  5. Research and Development: We conduct assessment on our classroom dialogues and contribute to the fields of dialogue practice and dialogue as a pedagogy through funded research, conference presentations, publications and networking with colleagues at CU and around the country.
